The Gecko brothers are on the run from the law after robbing a bank. They are heading for the border and don't help matters by holding up and subsequently blowing up a gas station. With the police in pursuit, and needing to get across the border, they kidnap the preacher Jacob and his two children.

Once across the border they head for the 'Titty Twister', a seedy nightclub and haven for criminals. They are to remain there until dawn in anticipation of meeting up with criminal friends. When they arrive, they discover that the club is anything but safe. The brothers have to team up with the hostages in order to stay alive until dawn.

The picture quality of this disc is absolutely dreadful. It is grainy and you can literally see the encoding processes at work. At the beginning of the film, as the camera pans out, a car is driving down a long straight road. It can be seen 'jumping' down the road along with some horrendously blocky flags.

However, the dire picture is made up with good use of the surround channels. There's plenty of splats, groans and crunches all around, plus the special effects are excellent. The dialogue is also amusing with some great one-liners. There is also one extra bonus, we get to see a scantily clad Salma Hayek, and snake, in a very sexy dance.

If you had never seen or heard anything about this film before then you'd be totally amazed by the actual film plot. You would have never have guessed it from the initial fifteen minutes of the film. The Clooney and Tarantino partnership is great with Tarantino adding his usual bloody and violent flair to the proceedings. It is a fine film for anyone's collection, but go out and buy the video instead - it will cost you less and the image quality will probably be far better!
